“Kelsey is creative and full of energy! She knows how to engage dancers in focusing on correct technique, while teaching them how to dance with heart and emotion. Kelsey is up to date on current dance trends and really feels making connections with each individual  dancer is important.”

Ethan Zambrano

“Kelsey was my first dance teacher at the age of 17. She pushed me and encouraged me to be a great dancer in the performing and teaching sense. In my preparation for auditioning at Oklahoma City University for the dance program, Kelsey worked with me for months in several styles of dance to prepare for that moment. Thankfully, I was accepted into the program.
Even since I graduated and am about to finish my last semester at OCU, I have always held onto to Kelsey’s advice and encouragement. She never gave up on me. She continually challenged me and still does.
Her choreography and personality are everything I strive to be as a dance instructor some day. I could not have asked for a better teacher and now friend!”

“In the 8 years that I have known and worked alongside Kelsey, I have been blown away at her creativity and work ethic. Kelsey has a way of connecting with her students on a level that brings out the best in them, both in the classroom and out. I have experienced her work in all genres, but specifically hip hop, contemporary and lyrical. She is extremely versatile and has a strong attention to technical detail. I am thrilled to hear of her studio opening, and look forward to seeing all that she brings to the community and dance world!”

Derek Mitchell

“Kelsey was my assistant and one of my lead dancers for 3 of the years that she was in NYC studying dance. She was an asset to all of my projects over that time. Her passion, commitment and determination were some of the qualities that made her a great teacher and more importantly a true artist. I highly recommend Kelsey- anyone would be lucky to study under her guidance.”

Kayla Tanberg

“After working with Kelsey for a few years in the dance industry, I can honestly tell you that I have never met someone who is so hardworking, humble and talented. Kelsey is not just your average teacher. She is always encouraging her dancers and the teachers around her to be the very best versions of themselves. With Kelsey’s vibrant, positivity and energy she can step into any room and light it up with the simplicity of her presence. Kelsey is so incredibly talented and has choreography that is always fresh, exciting, and innovative. When I found out that she was opening up a studio I was beyond excited for her. I honestly could NOT think of a more perfect person for this. I am so excited to continue to watch her dance journey blossom before our eyes.”

“My daughter tried one hip hop class last year which she loved so much she added Jazz, Tap, and Lyrical in May. I have found that Kraz dance has really helped to develop her skills in dance but also enhance confidence she has in herself. She has strong bonds with her cohort of dancers, like an extended family. Kraz ignited passion, commitment, values, and has helped provided a source to maintain her physical health and well-being! Thank you Kelsey and the entire Kraz dance family.”

“My girls have been a part of KrAz Dance for three years now. My oldest Adalyn is starting her second year in the competition team and Emalyn is doing recreational classes. Both my girls love dancing at KrAz dance with their teachers. Miss Kelsey and Miss Alyssa are amazing dance teachers. They both really care about the students they teach and are also both great mentors to the girls. I asked my two girls why they love dance and their teacher. Adalyn said she loves that Miss Kelsey challenges her and pushes her to do her best. She said Miss Kelsey has helped her find her love for dance and she is excited to learn so much more this year. Emalyn says she loves dance because it is fun and Miss Alyssa makes class fun.  I am so grateful to have a great dance program for my girls in our community.”

My 11 year old daughter has been dancing since she was 5 years old, and it wasn’t until she came to Kraz Dance that her skills began to grow tremendously. I’ve watched her grow as a dancer and as a person too. The time and attention given to each dancer by Miss Kelsey is rare. We are truly blessed to have a professional dancer straight out of New York City guiding our children. Kraz Dance is an experience, not just a dance studio! 10/10!
